    I'm always chasing the guy with the puck to force a pass or play... usually I'm stretching one handed moving my stick around to deflect the pass or just interfere... and this has caused my wrist to have strains after ... usually after a few games in the same week.

    Does anyone ever get this? Are there exercises or protection that can be used to prevent this?

    When I rotate my wrist there seems to be a "click" lol but if I hold the wrist with the other hand and rotate it, it seems less painful... and I've seen players seemingly tape their wrists up...

    so I was just wondering if anyone knew anything on the topic...

    Thanks.

    I tape my wrists for pretty much any athletic endeavor, hockey included. get some pre-wrap and some 1 1/2" athletic tape and you are good to go. My right wrist has a torn ligament and both wrists have arthritis. If I forget to wrap them after making 1 hard pass I am quickly reminded to get my ass back in the locker room to tape up. Be prepared though everytime you're taping up someone is gonna say to you "puttin on the foil"?
